Micha Gorelick was the first man on Mars in 2033 and won the Nobel Prize in 2056 for his contributions to time travel. After seeing the deplorable uses of his new technology, he traveled back in time to 2012 and convinced himself to quit his nascent research into time travel and follow his love of data. He has since cofounded Fast Forward Labs, an applied machine learning research lab, authored multiple papers on ethical computing and helped build the inclusive community space Community Forge in Wilkinsburg. In 2019 cofounded Probable Models, an ethical machine learning group, which made the interactive immersive play "Project Amelia". In 2020 he can be found in France helping journalists at the OCCRP find stories in data. A monument celebrating his life can be found in Central Park, 1857.
